Hi, everyone! The EGW Faculty is super happy to tell you that the Experimental Gameplay Workshop was another success this year. We want to express our deepest gratitude to all the people who submitted and the attendees (who started to make the line one hour and a half before the show). We've worked during the whole year to bring you the finest selection of experimental games submitted from all over the world. We also encourage to spread the voice to apply for next year's selection :)
And now...the EGW 2019 lineup:
A collection of edible games and a cookbook by Jennifer Sandercock. Yummy!
Lucky me, a game by Mohannad Al-Khatib in which you have to be the last person alive in a world where everyone copies your actions.
Lucifer within us by Kitfox Games. A game where you have to reconstruct events of a crime by combining testimonies into a single timeline to realize what happened.
Misshapen is a game where you reduce the mobility of your enemies by distorting their bodies and, in the process, create living structures that allow you to reach places that are not accessible in any other way. A game by Nicolás Saraintaris and Nicolás Recabarren.
Carto is a tile placement adventure game where you explore the lands you placed and discover secrets. A game by Sunhead Games.
Sloppy forgeries by Jonah Warren is a game where players race to copy the painting as quickly and accurately as possible.
Eloquence is a game where players solve language puzzles as they take on the role of a friendly alien. A game by Gerben Grave, Job Talle, Samma van Klaarbergen, Thomas Jager and Leroy Freeth.
Nerve Damage is a fast-paced first person shooter with intense, overwhelming visuals. It is designed to evoke feelings of panic, discomfort and anxiety while still being fun and compulsively playable. A game by Dennis Carr and Corey Bertelsen.
Plusminus is a game where you can generate magnetic fields anywhere and manipulate the magnetic properties of objects in order to explore the world and fight for your survival. A game by Veera Hokkanen, Thomas Holmes, Hannu Koivuranta, Antti Sandberg, Helena Sorva and Juuso Toikka.
Hostile User Interface is a simple get-through-the-maze game with one catch: the controls are deliberately chosen to trick the player into accidentally hitting Windows hotkeys which may close the game, flip the screen, or otherwise interfere with play. A game by Shawn Liu and Ian Schreiber.
What the golf? A silly physics-based golf parody made by Triband where every golf course is a new surprising type of golf, some brilliant or hilarious, others so absurd they will make you go: WHAT THE GOLF?
You Busy? is a game by Trynn and Christopher Sosa about the channels that people and information must flow through in order to complete "work".
Picture Processing by Frank DeMarco is a puzzle game where players restore glitched 8-bit games.
Hypnospace Outlaw by Tendershoot, Michael Lasch That and WhichIs Media is a game about being an internet censor in the 90's.

We hope to see you again. Have a great year!
